District Shooting and Archery Competition

We were pleased to be able to hold our District Archery and Shooting competitions again after a two year break due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  The event was held at the 18th Norwich Scout HQ over the weekend of the 2nd & 3rd April and 18 teams from 10 Groups took part in different shooting and archery disciplines.

The archery competition was made up of 2 disciplines in which the scouts had 9 scoring arrows at 10m and 9 scoring arrows at 15m.
